Lion Safari UT 1300
12V 105Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) Battery
Made from the safest, highest-grade lithium iron phosphate, this battery outperforms the rest and replaces lead-acid batteries for energy storage and for auxiliary power. Enjoy all these great benefits of lead-acid:
- Last Longer – Limited lifetime warranty*
- Maintenance Free – Retains charge for up to 2 years, no trickle charging or fluids needed
- Fast Charging and Lightweight – 15% faster charging with a smart Battery Management System (BMS) and only 23 lbs
- Longer Run Time – Camp 2x longer, lift and dump 4x more on a single charge with 150A continuous output.

MONEY SPENT WISELY
How do I justify the bigger investment in a lithium battery?
First Factor – Size - Our UT 1300 lithium iron phosphate 105 Ah/1344Wh/100A battery, is a stanard 24 size, smaller than typical group 27 or 31 AGM / lead acid. This means that you may be able to fit an extra battery in your battery box!
Second Factor - Weight - traditional lead acid batteries often weigh more than 50lbs. Our lithium batteries weigh 23 lbs. or less. When you travel or have to lift the battery, that extra weight makes a big difference.
Third Factor- Usage - With the UT 1300 you camp 2x longer than using lead acid batteries because you can use all the energy stored in our battery compared to only being able to use about 50% in a lead acid battery. You can also use the UT 1300 on its side, end, or even upside down because there's no acid to worry about spilling out or emitting toxic fumes.
So, one lithium battery is basically equal to two AGM/lead acid batteries as far as everyday usage. The average price for two AGM/lead acid batteries is going to be about $500 to $600 and they don't last nearly as long so you'll have to replace them every 3-5 years. For example, an AGM/lead acid battery is limited to 200 -500 times, depending on how well it is taken care of and regularly maintained. Our LifePO4 batteries have 3500+ cycles. That is approximately 8X the life cycle. Considering these 2 factors – being able to run them 2X longer, and the fact that they have 8X more life cycles - our UT1300 is equal to nearly 16 AGM/lead acid batteries.
Fourth Factor - Warranty - The average warranty for AGM/lead acid Batteries is 3-5 years. Even then, if it needs to be returned, it is a prorated refund. Our UT 1300 has a limited Lifetime Warranty. This means that once you buy one of our batteries, you're set for life.
So, with a smaller size, lighter weight, longer usage, and a lifetime warranty, the Lion UT 1300 lithium battery is an exceptional value.

There are a lot of things to love about the Safari UT 1300: its lightweight for easy use and transportation, its long lifespan to camp 2X longer, and its ability to recharge from renewable sources. It will provide renewable energy for years to come.
At only 23 lbs, and a standard group 24 size (small footprint), the Safari UT 1300 is about 1/2 the weight of traditional batteries yet exceptionally powerful.
Made from Lithium Iron Phosphate, it's the safest lithium battery on the market. You can use it indoors or outdoors. It doesn't use potentially volatile chemistry.
Long-lasting life cycles at 3,500+ using the full depth of discharge (DOD) and still has the power to spare. It can hold a charge for up to 2 years.
Renewable Solar Batteries
Use the power of the sun to fully recharge the UT 1300 in as little as 7 hrs. That way you can stay as long as you want.
Camp 2X As Long
Standard lead acid batteries give you 50% usable energy or Ah. The Safari UT 1300 gives you 100% usage or all 105Ah. You'll be able to go camping 2X as long on a single charge as lead acid.
Expandable for More Power
One Safari UT 1300 has 150A continuously and a 900A peak discharge. If you need more, they can be connected in parallel or in series to get even energy storage and more power.
No acid or water. No trickle charging. No mess. The Safari UT 1300 just works, day in and day out.
The Safari UT 1300 comes with a limited lifetime warranty and is the last battery you'll probably ever need. Using Lithium Iron Phosphate technology, it can be drained and recharged over 3,500 times, years and years longer than Lead Acid batteries.
The Safari UT 1300 produces zero emissions or carbon footprint during use, emits no greenhouse gases, and does not damage the environment. It's good for you and the planet.
BATTERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (BMS)
Our Safari UT battery series comes with our own proprietary BMS that will protect your battery from harm. It's like having a personal bodyguard for your battery.
The Safari UT series all have an internal Battery Management System (BMS) that acts as a safety net to shut down the battery if it is out of parameters. This prevents the battery from overcharging or discharging as well as operating outside of the temperature range.
WHERE TO USE YOUR LITHIUM IRON PHOSPHATE BATTERIES
Life on Your Terms
This very well could be the last battery you ever have to buy. Easily replace traditional lead acid batteries to power your motorhome, RV, Overlander, bus, tiny home, houseboat, trolling motor, outbuildings, and more.
We have created a step-by-step walkthrough on how to use the Safari UT 1300 for either:
- Camping / RV Use
- Marine / Water Use
Be Prepared To Power Anything
In addition to powering all your toys, you can also use your Safari Lithium Iron Phosphate Batteries to be prepared for any emergency.
The Lion Energy DIY Solar Kit lets you harness the power of the sun, store the energy in your Safari UT 1300 batteries, and convert it to power for your devices, tools, lights, and many other power needs. Use the DIY Kit for your shed, cabin, gazebo, campsite, or outdoor adventure.
HOW THE SAFARI UT 1300 STACKS UP TO OTHERS
- The Safari UT 1300 is the lightest Lithium Iron Phosphate battery in its class by more than a bunch. This makes a HUGE difference when you're looking at the overall weight capacity for your RV, Trailer, or outdoor rig.
- Because we use prismatic cells vs cylindrical cells, we can pack more power in a smaller unit.
- The Safari UT 1300 has a limited lifetime warranty. It may be the last battery you'll ever buy. Everyone else offers only a 3 to 11 years warranty and is often prorated.
- When you look at the price per watt basis and the extended life and usage capacity, the Safari UT 1300 gives you outstanding performance.
